Pay your council tax

You can pay in many ways including online, Direct Debit or by phone

Pay by Direct Debit

You can pay by Direct Debit which is the easiest and most secure way of paying your council tax bill. You can choose to pay on the 1st, 15th or 30th of each month, over 10 or 12 instalments.

The best way to apply for a direct debit is through our Staffs Moorlands 'My Account' service. Registration is easy, and means that you can track the progress of your request from start to finish. You'll also be able to view personalised council tax information online. Simply click on the button below! If you already have an account with us, you can also log in here.

To apply for a direct debit without an account, click on the button below. Please note that you won't be able to track the progress of your request OR view bills online if you choose this method.  

If you need to change your instalment dates, or bank account details, please call us on 0345 605 3011.


Paying online is easy and secure.  We accept all major credit and bank cards.

You will need your council tax account number which you will find on your council tax bill.
